Services and Activities Fee

Annual Budget Proposal

Dear Students,

The SAF Committee is accepting applications for the annual budgeting cycle from now until 5:00pm on January 14th, 2015. The intent of the annual operating budget is to support on-going student activities, services, and programs. Services and Activities Fees are defined in RCW 28B.15.041 to mean “fees, other than tuition fees, charged to all students registering at the . . . state universities . . . The legislature also recognizes that Services and Activities Fees are paid by students for the express purpose of funding student activities and programs” of their particular institution. These funds will be available for the 2015 to 2016 academic year.


A member of your group must be available to attend a hearing with the SAF Committee tentatively scheduled for Friday, February 6, 2015 and Friday, February 13, 2015. Please include a regularly checked email in the application, as that will be the main form of communication between SAF and the requesting group. The SAF Liaison will contact the requesting group to notify them of a hearing time. Please ensure that your request is in accordance with SAF Bylaws, which are available at the following website: http://www.uwb.edu/studentlife/safc/safbylaws. Please note the SAF Committee will be coordinating with Club Council to develop an efficient funding model.


The Committee will hold an open forum and appeals, tentatively scheduled for on Friday, April 3, 2015. Requesting groups will be notified of a preliminary budget before the open forum and appeals date. Late applications will not be accepted, except at the discretion of the Committee. Adjustments to the final total requested by any club, group, organization, or department will not be accepted. After a request has been submitted, it may not be reopened for alterations or changes.
